replicant

Finished saving the galaxy

I know the ending for Mass Effect 3 was controversial, and that a significant number of people went WUT, and that folks were sufficiently upset that an extended ending was written to try and mollify those people. I was advised to download the extended ending before playing. I kind of wish I hadn't.

After it ended I went and had a look to find out what happened differently before the extension was added, and I think I would have preferred that.

Obviously I'm in the minority, for both these games, in liking the way they chose to end them. And I'm concerned that because of that, Bioware will stop writing these types of endings and we'll go back to the 'kill the boss, everyone lives happily ever after' style endings that make games into Disney movies and for me, ultimately forgettable.

I hope not.
